Well my schedule limit moving TAG more than a few miles so file photo it is.

Located on a 3 digit north-south US hwy who's sum equals 5. This retired bridge crosses a county line and if you go from the north side you end up in a state park that shares the same name as the river the bridge crosses.



Clue shot



It reads:
Gilchrist Bridge
Hoke County
State project No. 545
Built by
North Carolina
State Highway Commission
1922

If I did any searching I might be able to find it. Might even be able to ride this evening depending on the honeydo stuff.

It only takes about 20 seconds to figure this out with Google. You can do it. I have faith.

It took me a few more seconds because the contrast in the photo is not good. Now that I know it says Gilchrist Bridge that makes it easy.

It's only 5 1/2 hours on a 90 degree day. One way. Tempting.

Finding it using Google was easy. Hour and 10 minutes each way. Not to bad but I just gotta see if I can get away. I got a new tag planned that's pretty cool.

Naw..
About the time you got to Greensboro you would be wondering what you are doing. It is in Sandflea area you know. You might find the terrain too foreign to enjoy.

Well my other choice was a TAG in Marshall which would have been alot closer to you.

I guess someone is waiting for me to grab this one? I thought one of the soldier folk would have moved it.

I'm busier than a one-legged man in an ass kicking contest this week. Hell, I just got home from work at 2130. It is completely safe from me.
